Some suspected cult members have allegedly raided a police station in the Ethiope East Local Government Area of Delta State and freed some arrested members of their gang.
According to reports the cultists raided the Eku Police Station and freed some arrested members of their gang.
Reports claimed the assailants, who numbered over 100, belong to different cult groups including Eiye and Vikings. They were said to have also destroyed some property in the community and left scores of residents injured during the three-hour raid.
It was gathered that the suspects entered the police station around 9.30pm last Sunday after blocking all access roads to prevent movement in and outside the community before unleashing terror.
The incident was said to have caught police operatives attached to the station unaware, as many of them reportedly took to their heels to escape the wrath of the rampaging youths.
The assailants, who were reportedly armed with guns, cutlasses, axes, broken bottles, and other weapons, also allegedly robbed residents of their phones, chains, cash and other valuables.
They were said to have freed 15 arrested cult members during the attack on the station.
A source said that the men vandalised several vehicles and prevented injured persons from being taken to the Baptist Government Hospital, Eku, for medical care.
